A 25-year-old youth from Dombivli of the district was arrested by police for allegedly raping a teenage girl repeatedly since 2007.

The accused, Sameer Sunil Nagpure, a call centre employee, was arrested late last night. He had circulated the pictures that he had taken with the girl and defamed her, police said today.

He called the 17-year-old girl to his house on the pretext of returning her their pictures and when she came home locked her in the house and made advances towards her.

He allegedly forced her to drink beer and raped her repeatedly when she fell unconscious. However, the girl did not reveal anything to anyone out of fear.

Taking advantage of the situation of the hapless girl, the accused repeatedly raped her ever since she was in standard VII.

He used to visit the girl's house when the family members were away and repeatedly raped her.

The police have charged him under Sections 376, 323, 504 and 506 of Indian Penal Code and also Section 4 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012, sources added.
